Tetra Guitar Quartet | About Time CD

Formed in 1988, the Tetra Guitar Quartet quickly established a reputation as an innovative and virtuosic ensemble. Their unique repertoire and highly original programming has helped make the quartet one of the most influential and sought-after guitar ensembles on the scene today.

Tetra has toured and recorded extensively, playing at many top venues and festivals in the UK and overseas. The quartet has given numerous recitals at London’s South Bank Centre, St John’s Smith Square and the Barbican; recent tours have included trips to India, Germany, Italy, the Czech Republic, the UAE, Ireland, Saudi Arabia, Malaysia, Brunei and Borneo. Tetra has performed Rodrigo’s Concierto Andaluz with some of Britain’s top orchestras and has frequently broadcast on BBC Radios 2, 3 and 4 and Classic FM.

Tetra recordings on the Conifer, Carlton Classics, Cadenza and Hallmark labels have been met with great critical acclaim. Of the quartet’s most recent album BBC Music Magazine said ‘this party-piece disc of the year achieves the impossible’. Tetra’s Vivaldi: The Four Seasons occupied a full display window in Tower Records on Piccadilly in London for four successive weeks, and By Arrangement was described by Gramophone Magazine as ‘one of the best guitar ensemble recordings I have ever heard’.

All four members of Tetra are past winners of the Julian Bream Prize and Honorary Associates of the Royal Academy of Music in London. In addition to their work with Tetra, Steve, Carl, Graham and Stewart are active in many diverse areas of music-making.
